To the editor:
Attached is a compilation of the 2016 Spring M-Step and SAT results released by the state to the public. As these results represent a continuation of the status quo, the legacy of the Zurvalec administration and board, I have included a set of questions raised by the results for each level, elementary, middle School, and high school that should have been asked and answered by now.
These questions should look familiar. They are largely the same questions I asked in response to the proposed budget for the 2016 – 2017 school year.
The added critical question, left as a painful hangover from the first M-Step results, is what has been done to remedy the identified deficiency at the elementary level in the district capacity to effectively teach science?
Now I ask, why doesn’t the Farmington Public School community know the answers to all of these questions as we are about to start the school year?
